Routine appointments

Pre-booked appointments are put onto the system 6 weeks in advance and are opened regularly with the aim to have available appointments to book no less than 1 to 2 weeks in advance. When there are bank holidays or periods of very high demand this may lead to longer lead times.

If you have a condition or a query that does not necessarily need a doctor's appointment and the lead times are longer than you would like, you can always ask for the doctor dealing with your issue to give you a call back.

If you would like to see a particular doctor or nurse then you need to book ahead whenever possible. This is especially important if you have just seen a doctor and been advised to return within 3 to 4 weeks. Please make the follow-up appointment before you leave the surgery.

Please remember that appointments are 10 minutes long and so only single problems can be dealt with. If you have multiple problems or complex needs please arrange for a double appointment.

Rapid Access Clinic/Urgent appointments

If you have an issue that requires immediate attention you will be offered the first available appointment in our Rapid Access/Urgent clinics. You will be seen or contacted by the team working that day which is made up of GPs, Nurse Practitioners and Nurses.

Rapid Access/Urgent clinic appointment should be used for acute conditions and not for ongoing problems.

Online Appointments

To register for online access and appointments please download this form, complete it and take to one of our receptions with photo ID and proof of address.

Download this leaflet for more information about online srvices.

Home visits

Whenever possible we prefer to see patients at the Practice as we have equipment and resources often vital for your care. However if you are truly housebound please request a visit as early in the day as possible so our visiting doctor can make contact and plan their day accordingly.

Telephone Consultations

We can deal with a number of problems over the telephone and indeed this may be more time efficient for both yourselves and Granta. If you require a return telephone call that is urgent for that day, then you shall be contacted by a member of the medical team. If you request a specific clinician then please allow 72 hours for them to call you back.

Please be aware that if you are a registered patient telephoning your GP from outside the UK, they may not be able to offer you medical advice. The GP will do everything possible to support you but legally may not be able to give advice, however this can be discussed with them at the time.
